this is the number one question i get asked about creating your own visual content for your business. it is confusing right? facebook cuts some images off, what works on facebook doesn't always work on pinterest, and what you like for your blog might not work when you upload it somewhere else!
in my free class on creating social media shareables i share what i think is the ideal size, and this is what works for me. but i think that YOU need to do what works best for you: it all depends on your priorities: how you like to share your images and where you like to share them.
use this infographic as both a handy guide to social media images, as well as a helpful tool on creating your own visual content.
